Weight of Brown Rice When Cooked?

Hi Guys, ive been taking a read through 'Rob Lobliner's' Lean Mass Programme, and he seems to display his diet with cooked weight of rice etc.
 
How much does brown rice / Pasta vary when cooked?
 
Thanks Guys

    The only time I measured brown rice before and after cooking 120g dry became 266g cooked.

    well I have been eating 100g (not cooked) rice over 4 meals a day, and got bored of making them up every night.
    100g of chicken for each of the 4 meals
    100g (uncooked brown rice) split over the 4 meals
    lots of veg
     
    so basicall i worked cooked them all up on the weekened and froze them in to seperate meals
     
    25g of uncooked rice works out to be about 65g cooked

    Depends on how long you cook it for. Usually a safe bet is double weight cooked to that of raw.
